Anyone tried free ranging their golden pheasants?
I have a 1 acre orchard which is totally walled and fenced in.. my chickens and ducks can't get out and no dogs can get in.
I love the golden pheasants and have found some near me for sale.
If I clip their wings and release them into the orchard will they stay there..... or will they be able to get up into the trees and get out? Or even constantly pace the fencing and find a gap to squeeze through? My adult chickens never attempt to get out.
My chickens go back to roost in their coop at night so don't fly up into the trees. With the pheasants wings cut are they still able to jump high enough to get to the lower branches. or run up the tree trunks?
